Download and install Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI): http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/. The Secunia PSI is a FREE security tool designed to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs and plug-ins which expose your PC to attacks. Run it weekly.

Also be sure to check your installed program list to make sure you don't have more than one version of each running. Sometimes when you install a new version the old version stays on your pc. You should be able to check in add/remove programs in control panel.

Some programs allow for installation of multiple versions...without incident...MS Office is one that comes to mind. Logically, there are few reasons to have different versions of the same program installed, but there are cases where such may be desireable, especially if the program is a suite.

You are correct sir. But most users only have flash / java for the web games/web sites. Very rare to have a product that requires an older version of either of these applications.
